our deficit and a balanced and responsible way. for nearly two years now, i have been fighting for such a plan. one that would reduce our deficit by four trillion dollars over the next decade which would stabilize our debt and our deficit and sustain us for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt and the size of our economy and make it manageable. education and job training in science and research and all of those things that help us grow. step-by-step, we have made progress towards that goal. over the past few years and signed into law 1.4 trillion dollars in spending cuts. two weeks ago i signed into law more than $600 billion in revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans began to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we will save in interest payments on the dead altogether that adds up to a total of about 2.5 trillion dollars and deficit reduction over the past two years. not counting the $400 billion already safe from winding down the wars and i rock and afghanistan. we have made progress. we are moving towards our ulti

heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to bode well for their ability to compromise with him and for the president to get a second term agenda passed. >> chris, i suppose you see it somewhat differently. >> she addressed political positioning and i think that's what the second term will be about, political positioning rather than solving problems. i don't know
